Julia FosterBowen Technique
With a degree in Human Biology I have always been in awe of the body and it’s ability to heal itself given the right conditions. A trip to Australia in 2007 was the beginning of my relationship with Bowen and my initial training was completed in 2010. I have since introduced Kinesiology into my practice, enabling me to explore the body’s needs , whether they be physical, emotional, chemical/ nutritional or energetic. I am fully insured and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and Kinesiology Federation.
I am a qualified Reiki Master and have practiced Reiki for over 12 years. I live in awe of the miraculous results I get to see on people and animals. Many people have never experienced complete inner peace until they try Reiki.
It is such a privelege to start them on their journey and watch the healing take place physically and emotionally. I am also the author of ‘Living the Dream Is…’ which has featured in national magazines as a recommended self help book for 2018. Available to buy through Amazon and selected bookstores.
